BALTIMORE (AP) — When rookie Josh Rogers got into a jam in the fifth inning Cheap Josh Allen Jersey , Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter was reluctant to take him out.He knew Rogers’ parents were in the crowd for his major league debut and was hoping to end the night on a high note.

And I didn’t really have my best life on it either.”Justin Smoak and Randal Grichuk homered for the Blue Jays, who lost for just the third time in 15 games against Baltimore. Grichuk also tied a career high with four hits, including an RBI single in the ninth off Tanner Scott.“Smokey has been a good player for us http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-josh-allen-jersey ,” Toronto manager John Gibbons said. “And Grich isn’t too far behind either.”The Orioles took a 1-0 lead in the first on a two-out single by Chris Davis that scored Mancini.
